Children are the future. To give the children in our communities a brighter future, ACE Cash Express partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) for our annual Give A Little Campaign. In 2021, we were thrilled to raise $20,829 for 3 Big Brothers Big Sisters chapters in Arizona, South Texas, and New Mexico.
This exciting collaboration is one way that our company works to transform the lives around us. The Give A Little Campaign, for example, is part of our commitment to giving back. The ACE Community Fund has donated more than $15 million to numerous organizations, all with a specific focus on supporting education, promoting financial literacy, and helping children.
Our partnership with BBBS helps children realize their potential and build their futures.. As we celebrate our Give A Little Campaign donation, we also wanted to share some of the other ways we help children across the nation.
Helping Children Through the ACE Community Fund
Every May since 2014, each of our retail locations chooses a charity to fundraise for through customer donations. This fundraiser, our Give A Little Campaign, empowers our teams and communities to affect change around them. Below, you can see a snapshot of the difference we’re so happy to be a part of.
Millions of families experience hardships that can leave kids feeling trapped in cycles of poverty, addiction, incarceration, and more. BBBS is helping children see different ways of living and the power of breaking these cycles. Every mentorship made through BBBS gives youth the confidence and opportunity to pursue their greatest dreams.
Our work with Big Brothers Big Sisters goes hand in hand with one of our other goals, supporting education. When partnered with a mentor, the children in the program have a better chance of succeeding in school. Mentors can help with schoolwork and studying, along with encouraging academic dedication, when parents are unable to. These relationships are so effective, in fact, that BBBS sees 75% of their littles graduate high school and secure a better future.
Building Stronger Communities
Mentorships aren’t the only relationships that benefit children in BBBS. The organization also works with parents, guardians, volunteers, and other members of the community to create a healthier environment for the local children. Coming together in this way helps support the people who surround students when they’re not with their mentors. Even more important, these partnerships ensure accountability. As communities collaborate to inspire confidence, set goals, make better decisions, ensure educational success, and more for the children in the program, they create a network that reaches every area of the littles’ lives. This support increases the chances of every child reaching their full potential.
At ACE Cash Express, we are honored and excited to join Big Brother Big Sister’s efforts across the nation. Learn more about our corporate giving through ACE Community Fund and how you can join us here.
